The Lady Blue Devils junior varsity squad went 1-1 last week to move its record to 15-5 overall and 4-1 in Delta Valley Conference play.

Last Tuesday, Davis High lost, 54-45, at Monterey Trail despite strong contributions from freshmen Cara Satre (14 points) and Tessa Malone (11 points).

Devil sophomore Sarah Sherwin added five points, 11 rebounds and six steals.

After trailing 27-17 at halftime and falling behind by as many as 14 points, DHS’ 21-point third quarter helped narrow the deficit, eventually closing the gap to 46-45 with two minutes left.

On Friday, Davis routed Grant, 50-23, as Satre scored 12 points, and three others — Emily Lopez-Ichikawa, Sherwin and Essence Moore — added six points apiece. It was one of the Blue Devils’ most balanced scoring efforts of the season.

Great defensive effort had DHS up 26-8 at halftime, and that effort carried over to a strong defensive second half.

In going 1-1 recently, the Blue Devils moved their record to 16-4.

Last Tuesday, DHS avenged an early-season tournament loss to Folsom with a 37-33 road win. Maria Voss led the Devils with 10 points (all during a third-quarter comeback) and Tiffany Miras added nine.

FHS was up 16-8 at halftime, but Davis switched to a full-court press to generate a ton of steals and eventually outscore the Bulldogs, 15-2, in the third period.

Then, in the fourth period, Miras and Emma Ford each had key baskets to help the locals maintain their advantage.

On Friday, the Lady Blue Devils dropped a 40-32 heartbreaker to St. Francis. Voss and Miras led the way with seven points each and Nicole Pugh and Ford each added six in the loss.

Another slow start had DHS trailing 15-6 at halftime, but the Devils cut into the deficit after the break, getting to within four points on several occasions.

“Will need to find a way to have two strong halves when we play them again at their place Friday,” said Davis coach Brett Andersen. “We never want to lose to (St. Francis).”

The Blue Devils had a tough week, losing two close games to good teams.

Monterey Trail topped DHS, 45-40, on Wednesday using a huge rebounding advantage (51-37) and taking advantage of some cold shooting by the Devils (11-9, 2-3 Delta Valley Conference). The board deficit has been a common theme in Davis’ losses.

Tommy McTygue led the locals with nine points, and he also pulled down five rebounds, while Nate Hassid was second on the squad with seven points. Adil Abbuthalha made every shot he took for the Blue Devils and Will Bodendorfer paced the team with five steals and eight boards.

Cole Skaggs added seven rebounds for DHS, which actually got off to a fast start, grabbing a 16-2 lead early. MTHS, however, turned the tide in a hurry, with a 24-9 run that went through the second period.

The third quarter was a defensive dogfight, with the Devils holding the Mustangs to just four points, while managing only eight of their own. Davis’ defense was strong the whole game, Monterey Trail shot just 36 percent and the locals picked the Mustangs’ pockets for 13 steals.

Friday’s contest was another tight one with Grant topping the Blue Devils, 67-59, much to the delight of the vocal Pacer fans. Once again, DHS was outrebounded, as Grant showcased its athleticism in winning the battle of the boards, 45-25.

Kevin Austin and Bodendorfer led the Devils in scoring with 15 points each, McTygue added 11 and Matt Cheung netted five. Scott Dunn got his only points on a difficult 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter.

After a close first half, Davis survived a 25-point third period by the Pacers and remained in striking distance throughout the final quarter.

The Blue Devils had success at the Del Oro Invitational on Saturday.

DHS sophomore Tanner Carr won the 160-pound bracket, while freshman teammate Ismael Perez placed second at 195 pounds.
